(J. R. Miller, "In Green Pastures")
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever
you do--do it all for the glory of God."
1 Corinthians 10:31
Amusements are proper, both as to kind and
degree--just so far as they make us better
Christians. Whenever they become hindrances
to us in our Christian living or in our holy walk
--they are harmful, however innocent they
may be in themselves.
How do your amusements influence your
spiritual life? They may be very pleasing to you.
They may afford great gratification. But what is
their effect on you, as a Christian? Are they
hindering your love for Christ, and your growth
in grace? We ought to be honest enough with
ourselves, to answer these questions truthfully,
and then act accordingly.
